I'll be shopping for parts for my MUTT. But might bring my mutt. Wife is talking about taking the dog and going to visit with me if she/him get bored she'll just go off to the local Petcity store.

I unfortunately won't be there until Saturday, but for anyone who makes it then, and sees this GPW, feel free to stop over a say hello! I always enjoy meeting other G members.

Setting up in Green A17-19?, last stalls down by the loading Dock of the Stadium, near the judged vehicles.
All sorts of things for sale, tandem hitch, portion of M151 pedestal (missing leg pipe) Early flat top MUTT Air Cleaner, some A1 takeoff generators, 4 M38A1 rims, HUMVEE Cargo top bow set, other HUMVEE parts, old NOS Deuce air hose tire filler setup, Maybe MB or MA? Pintle (no safety pin hole) Mid to late 50's radios (not as many as last year, too much weight) Radio mounts for those, wood radio mount adapters, WWII wood .50 cal ammo box
A ton of manuals (Marc sold many rare manuals at really good prices last year...)
2ea New 7:50 x 16 Staman NDCC tires (great for trailer but too tall for GPW or MUTT for $140)
Radio table stand for the WWII Carry All or Command Car setup (the floor mount). M60 instructional flip charts, heck, lots of various stuff to get out of the way, come by and find something.
V/R W Winget
PS: sorry, too far to take a vehicle for pleasure, sold that GPW parts conglomeration we had up there for $200 the other day, (and it has $400 in NOS Armstrong tires on it that I didn't realize...until he sold it just to to move it out. darn, deals a deal.)

Added: 3/4" stencil machine, Russian (CCCP) Manpack radio (their PRC-77 copy of the German WWII radio) WAW

Hearing about items like this makes me nervous...I have a weird feeling I'm going to find a bunch of things that I need and want, but probably shouldn't buy! :shock:

Marc I sent a reply...Russian P105 radio backpack w/two CCCP battery cases, headset, 2 antenna sections.

Added stuff to the trailer:
2 Tank Super Heavy steel Tow cables (1970's to now variant, not WWII) $120 ea.
M60 Coax mount assembly (white painted fixture with I suppose part of the ejection port tray ($100)
M60 white radio (46 series radios) doghouse mount with grenade storage box under it, a turret interior light affixed (plus spare bulb box on it) ($75)

M4 Sherman track tension wrench (about three feet long, 2-1/?+" or so closed hex end) I know it fits and is original as we have an M4 we checked it on...($125)
Wire Reel crank with handle
interconnect trailer cable that needs a lot of TLC but price will reflect that.
rotted out bottom, center spigot 1943 can (like the Jerry Can lid) you could cut the top off and weld a bottom on for a neat vehicle piece, but for $10 do what you want...make a 2 gallon can with just the top section...
Radio cables with cannon plug ends of assorted types.
Fuel can gravity stand, the type that has metal folder up the sides and 4 feet, sits fairly low to the ground, must be WWII or Korea, haven't seen on before marked on side, I think USMC, but it's packed now. $30-40 maybe, might sit atop another can for height.

Manuals out the kazoo....

Red Fender or top mounted MP or fire truck light assembly (OD plastic Body)

Friend:
Two crates of Vintage Hand Grenade (Incendiary?) black round cardboard containers. (seems like there's at least 75 in the two crates)
Bunch of HUMVEE goodies he wants to get rid of so he won't have to deal with a HUMVEE resto

Weather looks great this year, maybe a parking lot cleaning shower Thursday, but sunny and clear the rest of the time. WOO HOO!

Winget,

I believe you were one of the first vendors I hit. I bought a nice wool enlisted shirt with a felt air corps patch. We came by later and my buddy bought three EE-8 field phones.

Thanks for coming by, we did alright, but as my friend said, this is a Swap Meet, not public event. and consideration for expectations on those that attend should reflect it. Weather was great, tiny sprinkle on Thursday, plenty of Sun and not sweltering the rest of the time. Found a few things I wasn't looking for and everything I "needed" for a few repairs I need to get to.

We had a great time as usual. Weather on Thursday could have been better but wasn't that bad. The sporadic rain was just enough to be annoying. Friday was a beautiful day. The storm that blew through there Thursday night was really something. We were in the hotel across the street and could see the pop-up's blowing around the parking lot.
Found a tool kit box for the German 20mm Flak 30, some 8mm kurz brass and an ammo can.

I enjoyed the rally a ton! Unfortunately, I was only able to make it Saturday, though. Since I live in Aberdeen, I'm definitely going to plan to take off of work next year on Friday, as I was told that's that best day to be there :wink:
